    When I try to connect to my earthlink page I am getting a no host by that error name. I checked my info and everything is right. Here is the fetch transcript:

    Apparently your proxy preferences were mis-set. You should choose "Preferences..." from the Fetch menu, click on the Firewall tab, and set the Proxy Type pop-up menu to "None".

    Thanks,
